Muesli Cookies

I baked these cookies to use up some muesli that my girls had decided they didn't want to eat for breakfast.  Not wanting to waste anything, and in need of a morning tea snack, I added the muesli to cookie dough.  The cookies are delicious, filling, and very moreish but not too sweet.


Muesli Cookies

250g muesli or 150g oats and 100g dried fruits
100g wholemeal flour
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tblsp light soft brown sugar
75ml golden syrup
75g butter, melted
1 large free range egg

Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan/350F/Gas Mark 4.  Line two oven trays with non-stick baking paper.

Put the muesli, flour, cinnamon and sugar into a bowl and stir well to combine.  Melt the butter then add the egg and golden syrup.  Stir until completely incorporated.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until well combined.

Dollop tablespoonfuls of the mixture on to the trays, leave a little room for spreading.  Bake for 12 - 15 minutes.  Leave to cool on the trays for 5 minutes before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
